Yeah, I know papaya trees come and go but seeing this one die was quite sad. Probably because it had been our best papaya performer thus far. I sure enjoyed the fruits it produced. And I’m sure so did the other garden rodents and snails and bats or any other things that it attracted.
So, how did it die? I have absolutely no clue. Yup, I was one of those who forgot to sign up for Papayaism 101 in university…
Too little water? Couldn’t be. It had been pouring for weeks!
Too much water? Couldn’t be. When the sun did come out, it was scorching!
Too little fertilizer? Couldn’t be. I have dogs roaming in the garden that would have probably made the tree a personal toilet.
Hmmmm…perhaps I didn’t talk to it often enough. Heh.
Anyway, it is always uplifting to see new things bloom in my garden when one passes on….
